Preview

Both teams head into ANZ Stadium looking to bounce back after poor losses last weekend.

The Eels lost 26-12 to the Titans last week after leading 12-0 after 17 minutes and must bounce back unless they want to fall back into the mid-table pack. Five-eighth Clinton Gutherson was instrumental for the Eels on both sides of the ball, scoring once before completing 26 tackles for the match. Corey Norman returns to pair with Gutherson in the halves.

Meanwhile, Cronulla suffered a shock loss to St. George at home last weekend and will be looking to avoid slipping to 1-3 after Saturday night. Cronulla’s pack will want to step up after a sub-par performance last week which saw their back five combine impressively for a total of 844 metres run, 47% of the teams total. New recruit James Segeyaro is in line for a club debut and could provide the boost they need to secure the win.

As hard as it is seeing the premiers fall to a 1-3 record, the inclusion of Corey Norman will be a big enough boost to see Parramatta return to their winning ways.
